In mid-September Tony and I met with President Jimmy Carter and other Baptist leaders at the New Baptist Covenant Summit in Atlanta to discuss strategies for racial justice and reconciliation.
It was an inspiring and informative conference and we left filled with hope that the Church can and must be a model for racial reconciliation in our communities, our country and around the world.
Tony delivered the closing keynote address and, as you would expect, spurred all of us to declare the Good News in word and deed. It’s always inspiring for me to watch and hear Tony use the gifts God has given him. It reaffirms my commitment—and I hope inspires yours—to be a good steward of his public witness and years of faithful service, both here at Eastern and in the broader Christian community.
One way we seek to extend Tony’s witness is through the Campolo Scholars program. As the Campolo Scholars continue to prepare for a life dedicated to Christian service, we ask you to keep them in your prayers and support them as generously as you can. We believe this is a strategic and worthwhile investment and commitment to the future of the church.
Thank you and God’s peace and blessing on you and yours!
With gratitude and hope,
Executive Director of Development
